Weather

On my daughter's birthday, March 24, 1983 (25 years ago), it snowed in the triangle area. Please do some research and let me know how much it snowed.

MIKE MOSS SAYS:      Pam,     I remember that snow well - I was a Wing Weather Officer at Pope AFB at the time, and we received 6 inches of snow. If I recall correctly we also had some thunder and lightning at night as part of that snowstorm, which was a really awesome experience. Anyway, the Raleigh-Durham airport reported 7.3 inches of snow with that system.

A National Weather Service map showing how snowfall was distributed across the state in that storm is attached.
